Seven Fear & Greed Indicators

How we calculate the index More »
Stock Price Breadth

The McClellan Volume Summation Index measures advancing and declining volume on the NYSE. During the last two months, approximately 7.34% more of each day's volume has traded in declining issues than in advancing issues. This indicates that market breadth is weakening, though the McClellan Oscillator is near the top of its range for the last two years.

Junk Bond Demand

Investors in low quality junk bonds are demanding 2.00 percentage points in additional yield over safer investment grade corporate bonds. This spread is lower than what has been typical during the last two years and indicates that investors are pursuing higher risk strategies.
